1. Aubourn

Aubourn is situated 8 miles south of Lincoln and is really well situated for walks and horse riding. Aubourn Hall (pictured above) is a beautiful early to mid-17th-century house set in 1.2 hectares of gardens which are often open for visitors to look around. The village has a one way system which is unusual for a small village and is home to a lovely pub, The Royal Oak.

Nettleham is a large village within the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire. It is a delightful village to visit, with a picturesque village green, dreamy stone cottages and a sparkling beck. It's well served for amenities with four pubs and a number of shops, and has a lovely play area too. There's also a tea shop which is a great option if you're not a pub fan.

4. Navenby

There are a number of villages in Lincoln which sit along the cliff, and are known as the Cliff Villages. They are ideally situated for panoramic views across Lincolnshire and all of them are beautiful and well worth a visit or a drive through as it's a lovely scenic drive. Navenby is one of the larger Cliff Villages and is a bustling village filled with shops, pubs, florists and delicious bakeries.

Situated on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, Tealby is often cited as one of the best places to visit in Lincolnshire. Classed as an area of outstanding beauty, it attracts many visitors with its picturesque houses, walks, views and local businesses. It is a classic, picture postcard English village and is also home to The Vintage Tearooms which are very highly regarded. The village even has its own website which you can visit here.
